Ace the base ; Beauty & the Base

Rating ; Full cover or take cover; reveal or conceal; good questions, just like building a house, it’s nothing without the foundations! Ace-ing your base is beauty 101 when it comes to helping your look last from sun-up to sundowner & this all-rounder nails it.

Inside scoop; Go large, go 3 in 4, heck why not 5 in 1. Foundations new best friend this season is Clinique’s all round 5 in 1 skin-ssential “beyond perfecting” foundation. So many shades to choose from, and so many ways to wear it. It covers/ conceals/ reveals/ shades/ blends and lasts all day ; tick tick TICK.
